I have been on vacation for the past week in the Canary Islands, Spain. Internet is very limited where I am at, so I have not been able to post or answer emails to much this week.

If I don't get the chance to post on Xmas Day, I would like to wish everyone and their families a Happy and Safe Holiday!

Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the 2014 Rebels Saga Legends SL06 C1-10P ("Chopper") Droid. Hasbro did a great job on the sculpt, but I really wish they included a removable 3rd leg. He has 3 points of articulation which is his Dome and Legs. There are no included accessories.

Variations:
• Card has small peg hook
• Card has large peg hook
• Card back #7473240500
• Card back #7473240501

In this installment of the StarWars.com 10, they have picked the galaxy’s top mercenaries, from sharpshooting shapeshifters to killer Kyuzo. For this list, they are focusing on bounty hunters from the Star Wars films and Star Wars: The Clone Wars only, ranking them on efficiency, inventiveness, and cool factor.

Check out the video on the Star Wars YouTube Channel.

The 2014 Rebels Saga Legends: Mission Series MS01 Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios and Stormtrooper Set has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. This set includes Zeb, which is a all new figure and a repacked Stormtrooper. The sculpts of these figures look good and have 5 points of articulation. At the moment, if you want a Zeb figure this is the only way to obtain him.

Variations:
• No Disney XD Sticker
• With Disney XD Sticker

I have added the 2014 Rebels Saga Legends SL01 Stormtrooper figure to our HD Photo Gallery today. The sculpt looks pretty good for a budget figure and has 5 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, and Hips. Not sure if this is widespread or not, but finding this figure with a decent paint application was pretty challenging. I had to go through 8 figures to find one with a "ok" paint application.

Variations:
• Card has small peg hook
• Card has large peg hook
• Card back #7473240000
• Card back #7473240001

Enjoy the new HD Pics!

If your looking for a repainted build a droid, Hasbro has got you covered with the 2014 Black Series #01 R5-G19 Droid. A bit of a let down, as we were expecting a new sculpt, but Hasbro decided to just repaint these existing Droid parts instead of giving us something new. Anyways enjoy the new HD Pictures!

This morning, Diamond Comics feed debuted the latest (and we think greatest) variant cover to Marvel's eagerly anticipated new comic, STAR WARS #1: the Hasbro Previews Exclusive variant.

The variant cover was photographed using Hasbro's STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-inch figures, including Darth Vader and Boba Fett, the upcoming Emperor Palpatine, Bossk and IG-88 figures, and 50 Stormtroopers!

Star Wars #1 will be available from Marvel in January 2015, featuring the all-star creative team of Jason Aaron and John Cassaday with a story that picks up shortly after the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope! For more information on how to order copies, including the Hasbro Previews Exclusive variant cover, contact your local comic shop.

These are also available at Walmart.com.

The 2014 Black Series 6-Inch #06 Yoda figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. I personally think this figure looks pretty awesome. I know he is a bit out of scale when compared to some of the other 6-Inch figures, but it does not really bother me to much. Yoda is super articulated and includes a Removable Robe, Belt, Necklace, Snake, Gimer Stick, Lightsaber Hilt and Blade.

Toys R Us is having a BOGO 50% off Super 2-Day Sale on all Star Wars Action Figures, Play Sets, and Role Play items. Per the email, this offer is only valid in store and runs from 12/5 - 12/6/14.

So I received my replacement Star Wars Ultimate Die Cast Vehicle Set from DisneyStore.com today. Just like before the box arrived mint and uncrushed. 

But yet again, the TIE Fighter Vehicle's wings separated from the cockpits and fell off inside the box during shipping. I would simply just glue the wings back on, but the paint is damaged on the TIE Fighters and on some other vehicles due to the wings bouncing around inside the box.

I have given up on ordering these from Disneystore.com. I will just wait until my local stores receive these again, so I can make sure the set is undamaged.

The 2014 Rebels Saga Legends SL03 The Inquisitor figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. A decent looking sculpt with 5 points of articulation which is Head, Shoulders, and Hips. The paint application on this figure is a bit sloppy, but that seems to be the norm now. He is packed with a Lightsaber.

Variations:
• Card has small peg hook
• Card has large peg hook
• Card back #7473240200
• Card back #7473240201
